I did these skewers on the grill instead of the broiler. The flavor is very mild, I was actually expecting more, but still very tasty. The ingredients doesn't include tomato puree but its in the instructions for the sauce, so I added a tablespoon, wasn't sure how much it should have been. I actually liked the pork without the extra sauce, so maybe I used the wrong amount of tomato puree. I loved the pineapple here and it certainly made a pretty plate! Made for ZWT - 7.
